User Reviews of QuickBooks for Mac

Submitted on September 21st, 2021 by Anonymous

QB used to be great but is a pain now. With each upgrade, something no longer works. Or it changes but you can’t get answers on how to work with the change. I am actively looking for replacement software.

The Good…

I like that it is easy to send the accountant reports

The Bad…

The desktop version for Mac is not well supported. Answers and manuals are outdated and don’t match the upgrades. It’s not worth the effort to use.
